Easy Sheet Pan Harissa Chicken makes for a delicious dinner recipe that is best paired with Mediterranean Saffron Rice or Pilaf.
This has a spicy, smokey, and bold flavor. I have made it with a homemade Harissa Paste. This Harissa Chicken recipe is especially easy because this is cooked in the sheet pan along with Potatoes, Chickpeas, and Onions and served over a humble bowl of Saffron Rice.

What You'll Need to Make Sheet Pan Harissa Chicken?

- Potatoes: I have used Yukon Gold Potatoes here. You can use any variety of Potato that is available.

- Harissa Paste: I made Harissa Paste at home and it helps me make so many recipes. You should definitely try to make it at home.
- Lemon Juice, Lemon Zest: Bring up the freshness with some fresh lemon juice and some lemon zest.

- Olive Oil: Olive Oil is needed to drizzle on the sheet pan with Veggies and Chicken.
- Smoked Paprika, Salt, and Black Pepper: These are the Spices that go into making Harissa Chicken.
- Yogurt Mixture: Making the Yogurt mixture is totally optional but, if you make it you are gonna love it. Just combine Greek Yogurt with Salt, Pepper, and Grated Garlic. Stir well and it is done.
